    The Netherlands, safely behind an Atlantikwall tank ditch
  1. Haggis is available in the Netherlands. From the disgusting canned haggis to the very ok frozen MacSweens. Some butchers make fresh haggis also.
  2. I'm a MacLaren...Dutch? yes..Scottish? also! A Burns supper gala in Dumfries....2009 or so. (the kilt is the Isle of Skye tartan. I own several, but this is my wife's favorite...and she's the boss )
  3. I now picture my Hannants parcel smuggled north.. over Hadrians Wall...avoiding mobs of border reivers and patrolling redcoats, passing a Highlander accompanied by Sean Connery wielding a katana and Mel Gibson with blue face paint. To make things worse...Robert Burns was a tax man. The future route of my parcels will be full of adventures!
  4. Well....no. They have a lot, but not everything. Also...Aviation Megastore only has stuff with or for wings. I love to visit them, but I dislike their webshop. What I know...must pay 21% btw (vat) between 22 and 150 euros. Above 150 also import duties. Looks like I payed 9 euros btw and 10 euros administration cost. So a cheap parcel is relatively more expensive, because of the administration cost. I'll be more careful with what I order next time...and from where
  5. In with a Meng A7V or Panzershop Mk. I (male)
  6. lol...I order a lot from Hannants...I fear the moment when I also have to pay import duties when I order something from Brexitistan
  7. Dutch customs know how to find me...nothing new there. (it all started when I ordered a 1/16 scale gun barrel years ago...never seen that many stamps from all kinds of security departments on a parcel before!) I can't order anything from outside the EU without punishment it seems. Seen it...been there and payed the price before. But now this... A very humble online order...from my dearest Barracuda friend Roy. A set of 1/24 109 K wheels and Uhu open cowl flaps...a meagre 39 euros altogether. I thought that surely be humble enough to stay under the radar, but no...no....I'm a terrorist for sure...had to pay 19 euros import duties to get the bloody parcel. Geez! We're on the same side aren't we?
  8. Thanks guys! Yeah...I love the Tivoli! We got the Model One 20 years ago (still doing it's thing nicely!). I got the Model Two from my wife last year. I'm now weeding through the mess in my cupboards and (stash) cabinet. It's amazing how much useless junk...gathered over the years...I already binned. I'm trying hard to create space. Over 30 years old Humbrol paint jars, models started...never to be finished, scrap boxes, dead paint brushes, rusty old tools, old decal sheet scraps, manuals...you name it! I'll try to be more organized from now on. Start building from the stash instead of buying more will be a good start
  9. Yep...time to start making a mess again (still struggling with the WGr.21 atm). The new dining table...and chairs and lamp
  10. We got a new dining table and I confiscated the old one 240 cm hobby desk now...finally a neat (and for the time being...tidy) place to glue plastic bits together!
